About Us


An Advocacy Group for the Shawnee Mission School District

Dedicated to improving and defending our schools, Education First Shawnee Mission is a non-profit political action committee (PAC) registered with the state of Kansas, which seeks to support pro-public school members of the Shawnee Mission School District Board of Education, the Kansas State Board of Education and State Legislators within our district boundaries.

We Are Parents and Neighbors

Our advocacy group is comprised of Shawnee Mission moms. Our board is comprised of members from across the district, from Lenexa to Roeland Park to Overland Park (and everywhere in between). We care deeply about protecting the value of our community’s number one asset by supporting our public schools. We advocate for fully funded, excellent public schools and reject the concept of privatization and school vouchers.


Let’s Work Together To Protect our Community

A great public education is a large part of what makes the Shawnee Mission area such a wonderful place to live, drawing families from all over and protecting our property values. Let’s make sure our schools are defended from extremist policies that can harm our community.
